By actively encouraging knowledge dissemination and discussion we hope to raise awareness about key ecological issues and build opportunities for collaboration among our partners.
Scheduled seminar sessions are broadcast by webinar on Mondays 1-2 pm, unless otherwise indicated. Each session runs for a total of one hour and includes time for questions. Sessions may involve multiple speakers giving shorter 'snapshot' style presentations. Note that the schedule is subject to change at short notice.
